Fragrance of musk from the grave

After the burial of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin Ghalib Haddaani رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه the fragrance of musk used to emanate from the soil of his blessed grave. Someone saw him in a dream and asked: ‘مَا صُنِعْتَ؟’ i.e. How were you treated? He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه said: I was treated well. It was asked: Where were you taken? It was replied: To Paradise. It was asked: For which deed? It was replied: For perfect faith, Tahajjud and fasts of summer. He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه was then asked: Why is the fragrance of musk emanating from your grave? So it was replied: It is the fragrance of my recitation and the thirst of fasts.

Fast improves the health

The Leader of the believers, Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم has narrated that the Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of the Ummah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said, Undoubtedly, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ sent a revelation to one of the Prophets of Bani Israel commanding him to inform his Ummah that if anyone fasts a day for My pleasure, I will grant him good health and reward him greatly.’

Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat, ‘Allamah Maulana Abu Bilal Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadiri Razavi Ziyaee دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه has written on page 105 of his book ‘Faizan-e-Ramadan’ [Blessings of Ramadan]:

A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has stated in the book Al-Malfooz (part 2, page 143), ‘Once I saw my respected father Sayyiduna Maulana Naqi ‘Ali Khan رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه in my dream a few weeks before Ramadan. He said, ‘Son, you will fall severely ill in the following Ramadan, but be careful, you should not miss even a single fast.’

As my father predicted, I really fell severely ill in Blessed Ramadan but I did not miss even a single fast. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ granted me  health by the blessing of fasts. The Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said, ‘صُوۡمُوۡا تَصِحُّوۡاObserve fast; you will get healthy.’ (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Awsat, vol. 6, pp. 147, Hadees 8312)
